The tumultuous campaign season will have ended, and the newly elected President will be preparing for the inauguration, when the audience gathers for this event.
During this panel discussion moderated by Lester Crystal, longtime Executive Producer of the PBS NewsHour and former President of MacNeil Lehrer Productions, the discussion will evaluate the completed campaign and discuss challenges facing the new president and new members of Congress.
